I'm no English scholar or thematic genius but the dragons "Wakefulness" track seems off to me.

To me somthing like the dragons "Awakening" track or just "Awakened" would seem to fit better. "Awakening/Awakened" track?

I like to pimp my games and I'm already planning to get minatures to replace the standees (which I really don't mind too much) but definitely prefer over the wood tokens for the thief and knight. (I like the dragon forms)
(barring Kickstarter timing and its sculptured artwork for thematic quality)

I'm also pimping by getting bigger crystals (maybe real ones) and ive already taken a sharpie to all the cardboard edges, always a nice touch.

But "Wakefulness" I can't seem to get past.
I know, call me anal, call O.C.D. but can you think of anything better than "Wakefulness"? Or maybe I've just missed the point.

I'm not really complaining but would love to have it explained to me.

Anyone know the font used in Vast?
Maybe I can make a "Awakening" sticker to replace "Wakefulness" like they did in pandemic for the purple virus.

I think wakefulness makes more sense than awakening as you can't have more awakening, but you can have more wakefulness. Maybe alertness would work better for you? Or the reverse sleepiness.

I'm no authority (of course), but 'wakefulness' is totally the correct word for what it's describing. 'Awakening' just doesn't make sense in this context.

I appreciate your opinions/explanations, I guess I just have to get used to it or brush up on my understanding of context lol

Don't worry, Peter, he's probably talking about the sticker in the On the Brink expansion that adds the purple cure slot on the main board, since the main game did not have a purple virus.

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.
